lbs. to LEO

Broadcast 415 (Special Edition)

Charles Pooley was the guest for this Space Show program. Mr. Pooley discussed his company, Microlaunchers, and also the subject of microlaunch vehicles, i.e., starting small and growing to larger and more successful launch vehicles. He points out that starting out in the rocket business by making large rockets has a track record leading to failure. Mr. Pooley's approach is to start small, with 1 lb. satellites or cubesats, launching a total payload of 8 lbs. to LEO.
